clinton will appear with the dave matthews band tomorrow. he's been a very successful surrogate for the president. what do you think this means? >> yeah. they're pulling in the big guy as they call him because they feel that people who were pleased in the eight years of the clinton administration and what he represents and jobs added and prosperity and he's the most affective asset for the obama campaign. the president is very singular about not having somebody stand on stage with him. i bet you bill clinton will be standing on stage with him during the entire time when barack obama speaks because clinton is considered a real concrete asset that can change undecided votes. >> speaking of changing let's go back to mitt romney now. he seems to be moving more toward the middle in these closing days, not a surprise to the critics who called him a flip-flopper from the beginning. what do you think this will mean for those republicans who hoped he'd stay more conservative? >> let me quote the virginia governor bob mcdonnell who is a major supporter of mitt romney who said that his own
democratic. the scranton may be best known. joe biden is from there. hillary clinton's father was born there. everyone starts to campaign in scranton in one way or another. in sitcoms, scranton is a town. they have an extra gene for politics. host: we have a phone line set aside for those of you who live in pennsylvania. we want to hear from you as we focus our series here on the key battleground states. terry madonna, since 1988, pennsylvania has gone democratic. last time they vote republican was for george herbert walker bush. why? guest: 2 when the suburban voters, as i pointed out a moment ago, they come out of philadelphia with a huge edge and that is the largest municipality in the state with a heavy concentration of democrats. if you win philadelphia in the out of thet's say southeast by 650,000 votes, it's pretty difficult to overcome that edge in other parts of the stage even if republicans win the infamous "t" we referred to. the other thing to remember about pennsylvania is that it is dominated by one television market. there are six tv markets in the state, but philadelphia cove
goes to the directly to the office of secretary of state hillary clinton. >> steve: goes directly to hillary clinton . this flyies in the face of the mem that the white house is pushing. we didn't have warning that there was trouble there. that simply is not true . on august 8th. ambassador stevens sent a cable that benghazi was a security vacume and on september 11th the ambassador was under fire and siege and growing problems with security and now the new cable shows there was a potential for a coordinated attack. clearly this is not the message that the white house wants to push. newt gingrich was on with shawn hanitet and he is disgusted by it >> the white house is playing games with us. who was in charge. who did the president say should take care of this? did they want to rescue the ambassador and people killed with him? why was nothing done for sevenhours? you now have 7 weeks of refusal to explain seven hours and i find it mystifying. >> gretchen: current politicians and senators and members of congress asking a lot of the questions . the white house is pushing a particula

as well as lavar arrington and clinton portis. the man of many faces, mr. portis, has probably had his fair share of costumes in the past. so this year we asked them to share their memories of their favorite costume. >> my mom made me a tie dinosaur costume. >> my brothers and i dressed up as three ninjas. >> i do want to sit on my porch like i'm a mannequin and people jump up. but i've seen that gone wrong in some instances so i might not do that. >> i was really not allowed to go trick-or-treating. >> we got masks and put them on. >> and check this out. mona beach got this pick. look at this pumpkin. she said this is what she did during sandy. it took her about three hours. >> that's awesome. >> and look at this. that is bryce harper. >> no. >> down be a clown, bro.

and new york's cuomo. >> greg: we can't forget that bill clinton today said, what did he say? speaking of storms, if you don't vote for if you vote for romney that's a bigger storm. bigger disaster than sandy. i would say that bill clinton is a threat to anyone named sandy. >> kimberly: okay, than say tute political note we move on. new reports that contradict the administration story about the libya terror attack. we have details about what the lawmakers were told in a briefing, just two days after the attack. we are closely watching hurricane sandy. we have the latest as thecoast e megastorm. stay with us. ♪ ♪ starting to turn around because of business people like you. and regions is here to help. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. ♪ ♪ >> dana: welcome back to "the five." fox's catherine herridge reporting today on september 13, two days after the libya attack, lawmakers on capitol hill were told during a briefing with t
will join president clinton and a monday afternoon campaign appearance. mitt romney has scrubbed his appearances today, instead spending the next two days in ohio. just over one week ago in the campaign. we will be talking about early voting on "the washington journal." we want to begin with the what this question. what if it is not decided on election day? what if there is a recount or multiple recounts? let's begin with some news of the morning. the front page of "the new york times. marty it is now counted by county. -- it is now county by county. there is also this from "the washington post." va. even as being scrubbed for a number of candidates. the scheduled destruction did not stop the two candidates from delivering attacks on each other yesterday. the president of using his of parents to accuse mitt romney of raising taxes on middle class when he was governor of massachusetts. the question we are focusing on this morning is, what if there is an election dispute? we are basing it apart on a story that has this. election disputes likely. we already posted the question on the fa
is a complete head shake. i am not convinced how tough it is for mitt romney. you notice that bill clinton will be in pennsylvania on monday. aside from president obama the former president is the best surrogate his campaign has. bill clinton is going to be in pennsylvania on monday, the fact that obama campaign has spent more money on television in pennsylvania suggest there is some concern that the race has pulled closer than the obama folks thought it it could would be. >> heather: and storm sandy and jobs report. last one that came out on friday? >> these are both hard questions. simply because we've hevnhev an event like this speaking of sandy so close to a national election. how voters respond to the negativity and clamor of the campaign which as come back to full swing as to what has happened in new jersey, new york and connecticut, it's such an open question. it will be interesting to see how it plays out in terms of whether voters take that into account and think about that on tuesday. >> heather: we appreciate your insight. >> gregg: becoming to the bottom of the terror attack in
to the kind of tax rates we had under the clinton administration when those upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we are going to have to make some tough choices and a balanced approach is the only approach i believe will get us there. >> heather, your rebuttal? >> it's amazing to me congressman heinrich that you can stand here having voted for a trillion dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years and with respect to cut gap and balance it's amazing to me also this idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare and education and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. e. republican congre
. the republicans made a calculation after eight years of clinton that they were too far to the right, and needed to be in the middle for the national election, they needed compassionate conservativeism, to bush they sort of saw their bill clinton. but bush spent 1999 developing a real program. later called it big government conservatism. but he had a real plan there to create a greater federal role in education. he had a real plan there for a federal role on prescription drugs. they developed a vision. the republican vision -- >> hence the immigration bill. >> exactly. this is what he ran on in 2000. so there was some real substance there. what mitt romney is doing right here, he was far to the right in the primary. gave the conservative base everything they wanted. in the republican platform. this is one of the most conservative republican platforms we have seen. he did nothing at the convention from a policy standpoint to move away from that. he waited until october 3rd to start in a debate to articulate moderate-sounding outcomes. not policy, but outcomes. things that sound pleasing to modera
was a little not leave. i thought they would feel the need to do with bill clinton tobias, always answer the -- advised which was always answer the questions from voters -- advised, always answer the question from voters. >> you got the sense that they felt there was so much at stake that they could not afford to not carry out the mission, and in the president's case, to be there, ann romney's case, to continue to be presidential -- and in romney's case, to continue to be presidential. and to have smart answers to questions. >> i like the town hall format. i like the idea of -- of it. i guess the problem is there were many times -- the second question was about gas prices. the first question was neutral, i'm worried i'm not calling to have a job. the second question went straight at the president and said your energy secretary says it is not his job to keep energy prices down, do you think it is his job, and the next thing i know we were arguing about drilling in public lands. i went back and said the question was do you think it is the job of the government, and then they went off on th
that he and the president are breaking their neck to get real immigration law. clinton was in minnesota. a state that democrats were supposed to lock upped long ago. he tried to use a superstorm to hit republican mitt romney. >> he ridiculed the president. ridiculed the president for his effort to fight global warming and economical beneficial ways. he said oh, you'll turn back the seas. my part of america we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> obama camp is also suddenly spending $650,000 on tv ads in pennsylvania. democratic stronghold with 20 electoral votes. they revealed today going on the air in pennsylvania, the obama campaign sees a bluff. stephanie cutter taking a time-out from the bipartisan kumbaya over the storm to tweet romney decision to go up and p.a. proof positive they can't make the current map work to get to 270. throwing out lifelines to pennsylvania, minnesota. #desperate. obama team responds with team romney spending money in north carolina, that battleground may not be locked down as much as the g.o.p. hoped. we'll find out who is expanding
president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to run the table everywhere else. this is a good piece of news for the president out of ohio today. vir
with the latest. >> good evening, bret. this is a cable sent to secretary of state clinton's office at the state department showing that there was emergency meeting on august 15 at the u.s. mission in benghazi. significant because that is less than a month before the terror attack there. at this emergency meeting we're told, based on the cable, there was concern expressed by officials on the ground in benghazi that there were al-qaeda training camps there. there could be problems for from that. the cable says the regional security officer expressed concern with the ability to defend the post in event of the coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities and post nation is up -- host nation support and the overall size of the compound. they also in this cable say if the emergency meeting they describe the security situation in benghazi, as "trending negatively." they also said that they would be asking for more protection from the government. we know the calls for more security were not heeded. also important to note, though, that the cable says that the intel
. his name was bill clinton. when he was first elected, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of
. hillary clinton and president obama come out and try to set the record straight. right now and not spin everything. we don't -- we don't want the details. we just want answers and want accountability and want people to resign if they have to. >> brian: scott, two quick points to get to in a minute. real quick, when you hear the secretary of defense say i didn't want to put my guys into harm's way in uncertain situation, you are a navy seal. don't you always go into uncertain situations? >> if i got the call right now, right now to go to libya or anywhere else to help folks and they needed me, i would be there right now. every single military member, cia folks, state department guys, security, anybody would step up to the plate and run out there in harm's way to save fell will he americans. there is no doubt about it. >> brian: you think he was disingenuous when he said that because you and delta force and guys like you do this all the time? >> folks like us and that are out there right now. that's what we do. that's what we would do. i think it was a misleading statement at best. >> bri
-in-chief and not only this time around, but this failure disqualifies hillary clinton from being a future commander-in-chief. as she says the buck also stops with her and clearly, she is not qualified to be president of the united states if she watched these people die. >> alisyn: brian, why haven't we been able to get more straight forward answers from the administration? >> we're waiting, i believe you said it right, a measured response, the republican house is doing an investigation, let's be fair and give it time. and i understand there's a timetable, let's be clear about presidential issues when it comes to mitt romney, number within where does he stand on endorsement of richard mourdock, and rape and have children of rape. >> and benghazi, we're talking about-- >> and the second point, the second point he needs to talk about john sununu and racist remarks he's made in general colin powell and talk about the points-- >> no, leadership is the recognize we're not political party we're right versus wrong, getting answers. four men dead in benghazi and part the of the conversation, why we're not g
employ. you know, james what president clinton said in the democratic convention. no president even myself could have solved the mess we were given . >> it is a fact-free argument. president obama said he would solve it and making promises. and that shart testimonies the store store and the effort to say it was bush's fault. we were growing faster in the early president obama term. in the year 2010 when obamacare and dodd-frank enacted it was very slow. you want to point out the difference. there was more growth in the beginning of president obama's presidency than now? >> we are going in the wrong direction. forward is not the term for the way the economy is headed now even if that is the obama campaign slogan. and you lock at history of recoveries. this one stands out. we ought to be further along in a rebound, faster growth more employment and it is it not happening. >> gretchen: you question the moving forward with the policies and what the policies might be to continue the recovery with regard to taxes. >> that's what is scary right now. you can see very weak growth and then we
-president biden was there today's topic for reelection. expected to be joined by former president bill clinton, and you can watch that live at 3:30 p.m. eastern on our companion network c-span. >> as you consider that, you know, while ago no one would ever agree to carry around a tracking device. now we all carry around cell phones, which you can inherit the track. no one would ever have posted, you know, let anyone read their you know, right now all of us use the e-mail and it's all store on the server by go will. and so this is interesting that we, as a society, have given our information out. >> we were looking into cyber and cyber security, cyber war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of people and machines and networks as a new domain of war, and yet we realize that maybe one in 1,000 people really understood what cyberspace was and the degree and depth of the vulnerabilities. and so what we are trying to do is to take pieces of it and explain the fundamentals of the platonic idea that everybody from my mom and dad to congress and people around the country can understan
the first, the first republican control of both houses during the clinton administration, we were able to balance the budget for the first time in over 40 years. the poverty level was not as high. kids were taken care of. you're looking at a person who has passed children's legislation to help them. and nobody in utah should suffer and go without. but mitt romney covered last night how important it is that we have a good economy and that we get people back to work. and that we get jobs. that's why he's going to win this presidency. regardless of what happened last night or what the pundits say, mitt was right. and, frankly, that's the only way we're going to pull ourselves out of here. think about it. when this president took over, 32 million people were on food stamps. today 47 million just a year or two later. now, all i can say is that we've got to change it, and i agree with scott, we all need to change it for the benefit of children. >> moderator: a rebuttal, mr. howell? howell: well, i don't think there's a rebuttal because orrin and i know we shouldn't have starving children. my
in china. >> to quote bill clinton, that takes brass. but that ad got four pinocchios from washington post, got pats on fire from politico. so obviously he stopped, right? wrong. he's now buying ohio ads in the ohio city home of the jeep plant. >> now come words that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in toledo and throughout ohio? the same hard working men and went who were told obama's auto bailout would help them? >> today chrysler's ceo sent a letter to employees saying, i feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position. jeep productions will not be moved from the united states to chi china. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. inaccurate is a kind way of putting it. when corrected time and time again, governor romney has walked away from the truth. he hasn't fibbed, he hasn't mud idea the facts. he lied. and it's a lie he is selling to the people of ohio. it's desperate behavior from a desperate candidate. joining me now is former ohio governor ted strickland, national co-chairman for the obam
they shouldn't go along you didn't mention secretary of state hillary clinton. i take the post of the secretary of state would not be in the discussion typically? is that right? >> i am sure that she was in these discussions. but she isn't in the military chain of command. military chain is command she would have given advice. her advice would have been should you go into libyan territory or not. the interesting thing is that her embassy had the courage to immediately take a plane which was as far as our military base and put six americans on that plane and said go over there, 400 miles away get in that fight. try to help. they would never have done that if they hadn't gone back to state department and said we're going to send in reinforcements. you getting more confused. state department willing to do something. have you our military not willing to do something. that is really bizarre. >> where is the breakdown? i'm trying to look. i've made a tree of names you've given me trying to figure out what do you see is this -- where do things breakdown in this? from president obama to general demps d
was sent directly to secretary of state clinton's office. tonight a spokesman declined to comment bending outcome of the internal state department investigation. >> al qaeda in benghazi itself could only mean that all americans were in jeopardy. and, therefore, the notion that this attack had anything to do with the famous mohammed video, i think, falls further into disrepute. >> the details of the cable marked secret seemed to foreshadow the attack which was a coordinated commando style assault using direct and indirect fire. al qaeda in north africa and al sharia mentioned in the cable have both been implicated in the attack, shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington tonight. thank you. >> you're welcome. >> shepard: fire in the streets and webb one rioter shot dead in the nation that launched the arab spring and it tops our news around the world in 80 seconds. >> to your knowledge violence broke out in the capital city after police arrested a member of a hard line member sect. religious and secular factions have battled for control of local government since a moderate islam pa
and what bill clinton represents. >> paul: i think i know who wins that, the progressive win that contest. steve, what do you think about what happens if the republicans lose only a handful of seats in the house and president obama is reelected. does that mean the republicans feel chasen and have to do what president obama wants? >> no, it's the republican firewall and speaker boehner and barack obama doing battle again for four more years. >> paul: okay, when we come back, tuesday's vote won't just decide the presidency and control of congress. there are 176 initiatives on the ballot in 38 states. and they could affect everything from where your kids go to school to how much you pay in taxes. we'll profile some of the big ones next. it's the little things in life that make me smile. spending the day with my niece. i don't use super poligrip for hold because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well-fitting dentures let in food particles. super poligrip is zinc free. with just a few dabs, it's clinicall
for bush in '04. we thent for gore, clinton twice and this is a state not feeling the pain. 5% unemployment. they didn't have the foreclosure problem. they are a prosperous state. the recession skips over iowa. they are liking obama. >> whatever happens, whoever wins and we did our election maps and i have iowa going to obama, iowa is a state where romney will have his best gains in the country where john mccain didn't in 2008. this was a 10 or 11 point race in 2008. now two, three, four would be a lot for obama. you can go back to 2004, bush won a squeaker. in 2000 gore won it by 4,000. iowa is two states. we say it's a progressive tradition. there's a ton of social conservative, religious social conservatives in western iowa and there's also a lot of these white working class middle class voters as a demo brafic have turned hard on obama across the country. iowa, they are particularly pronounced in that state. a lot more for romney to work with. your point is key, i mentioned this last week on the show. in the 1980s iowa was an exception. the national economy was strong. farm economy col
. they are possibly inlet game. >> yeah, you saw former president clinton in minnesota. filmthey say maybe they are worried about that for the president. >> yes, where the campaigns are going and where they spend money. it is not just a head fake. it is usually defense. we know that in ohio. but something that makes him so a trend. >> if we see florida that is tight, and that will be a sign. virginia closes at 7:00. if that is going, i think we should see how the race is shaping up on tuesday night by seveno'clock. >> that is early. >> but that will tell us how the rest of the night is starting to shape up. it could be a late, late night on tuesday and into wednesday morning. >> that's what i am hearing the analyst >> brian: >> i closed my show, when i go back to dc, i will know who the president will be. i should have said i should know who the president should be. >> unless you delay your trip home. >> and we would love to have you. >> thank you for stopping by. >> ahead of tuesday, remember to tune in texas american special hosted by megan kelly and bret baier. we look forward to that.
clinton's national security operation form. last month in new york, it provides a venue for collaborative securities discussions with all of the gcc nations. but something has changed. it was reflected in the recent summit last august. i spoke with many of and some of them spoke with a different idea in the atmosphere of the meetings. one individual in particular described it this way. he said the attendees had constituent concerns. these concerns were expressed. they were not just representing their government. there was a keen sense that they were representing their people. plus, they had to go back home. they had to explain their roles to their people. the arab spring has produced a very real sense of accountability on the part of the leadership in the region. .. the operative word for government was controlled. you can show the media and the message. you control the population is at the borders. you control local and regional events. it was true for the governments of the region. it is true for u.s. policy as reflected in the outsize focus on military capability. but today, informatio
